(KMOV.com) -- Fire destroyed one Old North St. Louis building and damaged two other nearby buildings.

Firefighters responded to the scene in the 1300 block of North Market near the intersection of North 14th Street Saturday afternoon.

Fire officials said when first responders arrived, flames were billowing out of the building and smoke had blanketed the neighborhood.  Fire crews were able to get the fire under control quickly, but not before the fire caused minor damage to neighboring buildings.

Investigators said the resident was grilling to close to the building when it caught fire.

There were no reports injuries.
